3 stars Another one of those Focus album that came with different sleeve depending on which side of the great pond you lived on. This is a very controversial album , some calling it useless but it is not that bad but most constuctive criticism is absolutely true.

One of the things I always regretted is that Focus always stretched out whatever few good ideas they had , and it is quite evident if you see them live. The Question Answer suite is listlessly rendered live and that Eruption version would not even wake me up if I slept in the crater of the volcano.

On the positive side the two Focus themes are fine (but why two of those?) and at the end of the record they stretch out Hocus Pocus around Sylvia .

It would have more stars if it did not feature that boring Eruption suite (and the concert version adds nothing new to the studio one although it is shortened for inclusion).

Not essential .
